Just one month remains before the deadline for applications for the fall/winter Korea grants available from the Association for Asian Studies Northeast Asia Council (NEAC). The grants, offered in conjunction with the Korea Foundation, are designed to assist the research of individual scholars based in North America to improve the quality of teaching about Korea on both the college and precollege levels and to integrate the study of Korea into the major academic disciplines.
Grants are available in a number of categories, including North America or Korea research travel; Korea conference/seminar/workshop funding; and Korea Instructional materials. For the North America and Korea research travel categories only, applicants must be current AAS members at the time of application.
Applications must be received at the AAS Ann Arbor, Michigan, office by Friday, October 1, 2010. Applications for summer research travel are acceptable in this grant round as long as the particular research project is complete and all grant forms and expense receipts are submitted by December 31, 2011.
For complete descriptions of the grant categories, explanation of application procedures, and application forms, see the AAS Web site: http://www.asian-studies.org/grants/main.htm#NEAC-KOREAN.
